Nice Breakfast

Visiting Melbourne, decided to do a food walking tour. This was the first restaurant for breakfast. Very modern and delightful meal. Staff very attentive to our needs. Highly recommend

Recommended by friends but I found it overrated.. The cod and duck were just average in taste and presentation as found in any hotel restaurant. Service was atrocious considering the lunch crowd wasn't packing it to capacity. This place needs a manager to oversee servers to ensure timely delivery of dishes.

I just decided to go there because it was convenient as I was staying at the Sofitel nearby and I was tired. It ended up quite an enjoyable evening. First they have a great choice of sherries, and I love sherries. I picked Amontillado as a start,band later am Oloroso with my cheese and both were very good. Some beautiful... More

Pei Modern is inside the Four Seasons in Sydney. It looks a very casual restaurant but prices are more high-end. Not much atmosphere and certainly not a place for a romantic occasion. Despite making a reservation a month in advance, there was no table reserved for us and we were given a small table at the back which was so... More

Pei Modern has been rated as one of the best breakfast spots in Melbourne. While I don't think it comes near the like of Proud Mary it serves an excellent breakfast excellent coffee at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend.

in some ways I don't want to let too many people know about Pei Modern because I think it's one of Australia's most underrated eateries (and I like to be able to get in without too many crowds!). Don't get me wrong - they have a fine patronage but I don't understand why there's no queue to Sydney! Great food,... More

Read reviews about the sharing plates so I came prepared. The menu looks pretty straightforward and for a solo diner like me, it's still possible to order 1 starter, 1 main and a dessert without overeating. Which means if you want to share, you have to order multiples of everything according to the group size, which may add up to... More

This place does an excellent casual breakfast. Very useful for an early meeting. Also great for dinner which is more formal. Nice menu. Lacking on view/ambience though

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Started with a gin, cucumber and ginger cocktail -to die for... We ordered at least five starter plates and shared them, none was over $15, all were a little unusual, very fresh, tasty and enough to get a good taste. We did not order meat which did look succulent, at the next table! Winner... More
